I ate popcorn at lunch and a flake from the kernel/shell is stuck in my throat. I have drank a ton of water keep coughin and clearing throat and it's stuck. And it hurts! Help!

Maybe eat something bulky to push it down? Have any oatmeal or cereal around?

Maybe it's not stuck and it just scratched your throat? I'm no doctor but it doesn't seem like it would get stuck there with all of that water flowing through!

Do you have one of those HMO nurse phone numbers? That's who I call when I have a medical q. that doesn't quite warrant a doctor's visit.

Noodles or oatmeal, and failing that, cough syrup.

Eating a piece of bread will often take care of that problem.

drink warm water. if there is in fact a piece of popcorn stuck there, the warm water will help dissipate it.
